Gather your stuff! You’ll need a mirror, blackboard paint, masking tape, paint brushes (one big one and one little one) and some chalk for later. Blackboard paint is really easy to find, ours was from B&Q and cost £6.98.
As you don’t want to get paint all over that lovely frame, protect it with some carefully applied masking tape. Then, using your little brush, apply your paint around the edges.
Then, get your big brush and apply your paint. The first coat looks a bit rubbish, but wait at least two hours before cracking on with the next one. Mine took four coats to get it ready. Alternate the direction that your coats go in to avoid too many ridges.
Once your paint has totally dried, score the edges to prevent any peeling when you lift the masking tape. Peel off your masking tape and unveil your new blackboard wonder. Decorate with whatever you like – we put ours up above our drinks area with some cocktail ideas.
